rbb/ARD was Host Broadcaster for the 2016 European Rowing Championships
However the finals at the 2016 European Rowing Championships in Brandenburg, Germany had crews using their best technique to handle the cross-head wind conditions on the Beetzsee regatta course. Under sunny skies these finals gave an indication of what the 2016 season would hold as some of the best European rowing nations tested their racing prowess - some for the first time this year and gave an indication how good the European teams might compete during the Olympic Games in Rio.
The German host broadcaster rbb/ARD produced an international feed and a national program of the races on the Beetzsee in Brandenburg close to Berlin. For this purpose rbb/ARD have hired the OBVan Ü7 from TV Skyline, RF camera technology from rentEvent, Cineflex cameras (Shotover) from HD Skycam and a rope camera (RocketCam) from pmt. The races and the victory ceremonies were covered with 22 cameras.
